Ilan Wiesel's Profile Picture
Dr

Ilan Wiesel

 

I am a senior lecturer at the School of Geography, University of Melbourne. My research is focused on matters of social and economic inequalities in cities.

Specific areas of interest include: housing affordability; social inclusion and exclusion of people with intellectual disability; the geographies of elites; and, inequalities in the spatial distribution of public urban infrastructures. I currently lead an ARC Discovery funded study titled “The Disability Inclusive City”, and have recently completed a DECRA fellowship on Australia's elite neighbourhoods. My work has been published in key journals in the fields of urban and social geography, including Urban Studies, Housing Studies, Environment and Planning A, Urban Geography, Social and Cultural Geography, and Geoforum. My book “Power, Glamour and Angst: Inside Australia’s Elite Neighbourhoods” was published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2018. Before joining the University of Melbourne in 2016, I worked as a Senior Research Fellow at the City Futures Research Centre, University of New South Wales (2009-2016).
